Workshop - Population mental health and public health practitioners: What are the needs? - CPHA 2015
The NCCPH offered a workshop at the Canadian Public Health Association (CPHA) Conference, on May 26, 2015.
June 2015. Description. Download  940 K

As “there is no health without mental health,” all public health practitioners should consider population mental health in their day-to-day practice. Poor mental health and mental disorders are among the top disease burdens in the world and in Canada. Together they greatly impact societies' social and economic functioning, as well as general health and wellbeing, and have a disproportionate effect on those who are socially and economically disadvantaged. In this challenging context, the National Collaborating Centres for Public Health (NCCPH) support public health practitioners in their roles and activities aimed at population mental health.

To assess public health practitioners' needs, a survey was conducted between June and October 2014. Through panel presentations, facilitated dialogue and group discussion, this session highlighted the findings of the needs assessment from the different NCC perspectives and offered participants opportunities to collectively discuss and deepen the analysis of emerging needs, while also reflecting upon their own public health practices.
